Amadou aim for Fulham

24th January 2019, 17:17 by Jack Ogalbe

Reports in Spain say Fulham are one of two Premier League clubs to have watched Sevilla's Ibrahim Amadou.

Cottagers boss Claudio Ranieri is looking to inject fresh talent into his squad and, having already brought in winger Ryan Babel, he is keen to add steel to his midfield.

Defender Calum Chambers has regularly featured in the engine room for the club this season but the Italian wants a more natural fit.

With Stefan Johansen expected to leave this month and continuing doubts over the fitness of summer arrival Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, the former Nancy man could be the answer.

Amadou joined Sevilla in the summer from Lille but the 25-year-old has had to largely settle for Copa del Rey and Europa League action, so could be tempted away after just two La Liga starts.

Scouts from Fulham and another English club, believed to be Newcastle, are said to have watched him in Wednesday's 2-0 Copa win over Barcelona.

Sevilla paid Lille £9m for his services and a similar bid may be enough to persuade Los Rojiblancos to sell although competition for the Frenchman's signature could spark a bidding war.
